Correct me if I'm wrong: With GLPK you may solve multiple problems at the
same time using one thread for each problems. So, I don't understand why
it's important to make GLPK thread safe. As long as you are manipulating
the problem object with the same thread, you are OK. In case you need to
manipulate the same problem object with multiple threads, I think it's up
to the application code to properly handle the thread to synchronize the
operation done to the problem object.

There is also a global object that is not per problem.
IIRC it handles things like errors and memory allocation.
